Despite heavy enemy artillery, rifle, and machinegun fire he repeatedly visited frontline positions, where he quickly repaired damaged weapons in a high-quality manner and fixed problems, thus significantly enabling the successful conduct of combat operations. He especially excelled in fighting near Waterkein* Station on 30.1.45 when at the necessary moment he delivered ammunition to the first battalion, thus supporting the successful conduct of operations in capturing the station and in fighting near Landsberg* on 6.2.45 when the enemy carried out seven consecutive counterattacks and when the small units expended their ammunition, despite the danger of falling into enemy hands when the enemy was 50-100 meters from the road, he delivered ammunition, thus supporting the repulsion of the enemy counterattacks.

He is deserving the Order of the Red Star.

Short description of personal combat feat or accomplishment

Sergeant Komyakov has proven himself a bold and valorous warrior in fighting against the German occupiers. He especially excelled in combat for Hill 49,0 near the village of Koienen, Eastern Prussia where under heavy enemy artillery and mortar shelling he supplied ammunition to the regiment’s small units directly into the trenches. On the night of 8.04.45 thanks to his actions alone, seven bold, enemy counterattacks were repelled, in three of which Komyakov directly participated.

He is deserving the Order of the Red Star.

Re: Sergeant Grigorij Leont'evich Komjakov

This Landsberg is likely to be the current Górowo Iławeckie (currently closely to the Polish border with Russia (Kaliningrad Oblast)- it was called Landsberg in Ostpreussen before 1945 and was captured by the Red Army on February the 4th.
